Natalia (or Natasha, the diminutive of Natalia in Russian) was born in what was then the USSR. She studied dance from the age of 7, first ballet then ballroom and Latin dance. She had training from some of Europe's leading teachers and in her early teens won competitions throughout Eastern Europe.
As a result of international competition dancing, Natalia gained popularity in Germany where she took up residence. During the five years living in Freiburg, near the Swiss border, she taught many aspects of dance and represented Germany in top international competitions. The European circuit included dancing in the UK, where she met her British husband David Richardson a leading audio engineer and music producer, at the time Chairman of Sound Recording Technology. While living in the UK she declined partnering leading British dancer Anton du Beke, as it coincided with the birth of her son. Natalia now lives in Harpenden and in the last two years has successfully returned to teaching, this has included giving private lessons to individuals, plus the teaching of both children and teachers in local schools.
